NYC-Slip Slidin' Away
Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 2:34PM

A couple of weeks ago, I spent 2 days in NYC...yay! Always not enough time to do everything, but yet so much fun...always something new to see and do and a chance to revisit some of my favorite places.

I discovered a great place for lunch...compliments of Rachael Ray...any time I've tried the places she's recommended I've not been disappointed. Newsbar has a killer chicken poblano soup & the best grilled cheese bacon sandwich. They also have every magazine imaginable to read while you eat. I'd go back there in a heartbeat. It's right near Union Square, which is one of my fave locales in the city.

After spending some time shopping, it was time for pizza and beer. We then made our way toward Rockefeller Center, walking about 15 blocks in the -15 degree weather. The streets and sidewalks were still slippery and slushy. Adventurous? Yes. Crazy? Yes. Fun? Yes and yes! It was so worth it to see this...

If you turned around, every few minutes Saks played music and there was a light show projected on the building.

We slid our way back to our hotel (this time in a taxi). More pics to come in my next blogpost. Stay tuned!
